United Way Campaign

Johns Hopkins University, in partnership with the United Way of Central Maryland, launches its annual JHU Employee Giving Campaign to raise funds for nonprofit organizations working to improve the well-being of JHU’s neighbors, with a focus on supporting three important areas: financial stability, education, and health.

Each year, the United Way campaign allows supporters to designate their pledges in a way that is most meaningful to them. Johns Hopkins employees willing to donate $100 or more have the option to direct their United Way contribution to the Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund, which supports local nonprofits serving the communities adjacent to Hopkins campuses.

The Neighborhood Fund uses pledge donations made through the Johns Hopkins United Way campaign to help local nonprofit organizations build stronger neighborhoods by addressing needs in areas of:

  • Community revitalization
  • Education
  • Employment
  • Health
  • Public safety
